Virginia takes weapons charges very seriously. The penalties for gun charges are especially harsh and often require mandatory minimum prison time. If you've been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon under VA Code 18.2-308.2, making a false statement on a gun purchase form under VA Code 18.2-308.2:2, or concealed weapon under VA Code 18.2-308, we can help. We've had tremendous success using DNA and fingerprint evidence, challenges to the admissibility of prior convictions, and the legal principle of constructive possession to get gun charges dismissed. We can't emphasize enough that you cannot fight these charges alone (unless you want to go to prison). Please see our case results to see the many examples of clients we've helped avoid serious convictions and prison time.
